Have You Read The Old Farmer's Almanac For The Weather?

My grandparents always had a copy of the old Farmer's Almanac on the coffee table to thumb through and it's been a reliable source for the weather for the last 100 years or so.

When is the first snowfall protected to happen?

What Does The Farmer Almanac Say About The Tri-Cities Expected Snowfall For 2021

According to the Almanac, here is when we can expect the white stuff to start dropping:

November 18th - 25th is when we should get our first snowfall and it looks like it could be a white Thanksgiving for us.

We then will have a week of snow showers from November 26th - November 30th.

If you were hoping we would have a light winter, that still remains to be seen. Tri-Cities seems to have a tough winter about every three years so maybe we are due for a rough one.
